You may remember the concept of “Poems of the Day” from earlier challenges on this blog. These poems are not necessarily your best work, but rather something that you sit down and let blarb onto the page, right now, without a whole lot of thought. You’re seeing what’s on your mind, but still pushing yourself to make it a poem, not a piece of free writing. Add line breaks, even stanzas.
Trust yourself. To quote Old Lodgeskins from the movie, Little Big Man, “Sometimes the magic works, and sometimes it doesn’t.” Even so, I’m a great believer in magic.
Surprise yourself. Share your Poem of the Day.
